The clocks go back an hour at 3am on 7 April 2024
Daylight saving in Tasmania commences at 2 am on the first Sunday in October each year, and people should put their clocks forward by one hour at this time. It concludes at 3 am daylight saving time (2 am standard time) on the first Sunday in April the following year, at which time people should put their clocks back by one hour.
In November 2017, the Daylight Savings Regulations 2017 (Regulations) were included under the Daylight Savings Act 2007. The Regulations describe the period during which Tasmanian summer time is to be observed in Tasmania. That state that daylight savings time will commence at 2 a.m. (standard time) on the first Sunday in October each year, and end at 3 a.m. (2 a.m. standard time) on the first Sunday in April in the following year.
The period of daylight saving is prescribed by the Daylight Saving Regulations 2017, made under the Daylight Saving Act 2007. Since April 2008, daylight saving has been synchronised across Tasmania, New South Wales, Victoria, the ACT and South Australia, although South Australia remains half an hour behind throughout the year due to the observance of Australian Central Standard Time.
Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory do not observe daylight saving.
For the daylight saving periods from 2018-19 to 2026-27, the start and finish dates for Tasmania, New South Wales, Victoria, the ACT and South Australia are as follows:
